Cucumber Mint Fragrance Oil 15387
This makes a great cold process bar! Another one of our favorites, this scent is not at all what you expect when you take the cap off the bottle... the name simply does not do this blend justice. We really should rename it to something else! It is such a beloved fragrance with our regular customers that we don't dare let our stock get low for fear of bodily harm. This oil is super strong, our test candles ran us out of the room! This is a clean, fresh, bright fragrance, and lends itself to just about any application. We know you will love this as much as we do!

All About IFRA

We have IFRA on all fragrance oils and flavor oils on our website.

What do the maximum levels mean? Let's use Almond Paradise as an example. The IFRA guidelines on this state that there are no restrictions for soaps, shampoos, lotions, etc. So does that mean you can use 100% in your product? No. That would mean your product consists of straight fragrance oil.

The IFRA states the *max* that can be used, not the recommended amount. It is the responsibility of the maker to do their research to see what the recommended usage rate of fragrance oil for their particular recipe is.

For soap, as a general rule of thumb you will use up to 5% of fragrance oil in Cold Process (CP) soap and up to 3% in Melt and Pour (M&P) soap.

So, if you see a fragrance oil and the IFRA says 23% for soap, don't use 23%. IFRA is important when it comes to lower numbers. There are a few fragrance oils that have max usage rates that are less than the percentages shown above. In that case, you can only use the max shown for the oil.
